Irene must be at the top of her game or she'll be off the case -
permanently. . . Irene is a professional spy for the mysterious
Library, which harvests fiction from different realities. And along
with her enigmatic assistant Kai, she's posted to an alternative
London. Their mission - to retrieve a dangerous book. But when they
arrive, it's already been stolen. London's underground factions
seem prepared to fight to the very death to find her book. Adding
to the jeopardy, this world is chaos-infested - the laws of nature
bent to allow supernatural creatures and unpredictable magic.
Irene's new assistant is also hiding secrets of his own. Soon,
she's up to her eyebrows in a heady mix of danger, clues and secret
societies. Yet failure is not an option - the nature of reality
itself is at stake.
